I stayed for a couple of nights and it was very nice, the just renewed rooms are very cozy and warm and the old style buildings makes us feel in an old film. I just loved it. The service was great, it was raining and the receptionist drove me to my room. I would definitely recommend it.

This place is not at all like how it is portrayed on it's website. The reception looks lovely but it's only a front. Go round the corner to where most of the rooms are and it's like a scene from a horror film. Buildings are run down and forgotten like it's an old abandoned farm and not in a good...

Thank you for your comments, it is rather unfortunate that you have had a less than ideal experience at our facility and have decided to let us know how displeased you are through trip advisor after you checked out. We are in the process of a $20 million dollar upgrade of the old Silverstream Hospital, out of 25 buildings of...

It was quite comfortable, nice, clean and big room we stayed in. Got the room with the view of the river but not really close to your room - though you would hear the traffic when the morning comes. We stayed there for one night after a long drive from Turangi...George was very kind to drive us to the near...

Loved the peaceful surroundings and native NZ bush outside the door. The cottage is immaculately fitted out, nice and cozy. A nice escape from busy streets of the city. Nice touch with welcome hamper - fresh eggs, bread, milk and butter :) Loved the indoor outdoor flow and sound of birds. Friendly and helpful staff. Traveller would require a vehicle...

This place is nice enough, but unfortunately the other reviewers are right, there are very old buildings on site not making it feel very much of a retreat. And they are also right in that there was a huge youth church event, and as such we did have noise.. Was better than staying anywhere else maybe in the area, but...

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry to hear that your stay was less than ideal. We are in the middle of what is a $20 million refurbishment of the old Silverstream Hospital covering 40 acres. There are some areas which are still in planning stages, some areas are undergoing refurbishment. All of our motel accommodation rebuild is complete...

Good value for money Wedding facilities are good Rooms are new, clean, comfortable (although a suite isn't really a suite... it's just a room) Nice and interesting setting Thin walls... you can hear everything that goes on in hallways Lots of events involving noise (music) on the premises Bird and plant life nice.

Thank you for your comments, I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I apologise for the excess noise, as a multi group venue, noise pollution is something we take seriously and we do endeavour to minimise the disruption to our guests. With regards to the name suite, we are in the process of reviewing our room descriptions

Stayed one night during a business trip and was disappointed. The room I was given was a Stonewall suite. This is furthest away from reception, past the other buildings yet to be renovated, and is like a dormitory block. If you like the scout camp look then maybe this place is for you. It was a sunny day on arriving...

Went for a friends wedding in January & stayed on site as well. Everything about the venue was fantastic.

We visited Wellington 2 nights to take in the Military Tattoo and accommodation in the city was booked out.

One night stay for work here in one of the new apartment suites. Just off the main road and not far from silverstream for dining. Small but tastefully decorated. Fantastic staff. A lot of history in this property.
